The George Phillips and Tony Traylen Built Environment Awards are presented annually by Rutland Local History & Record Society in conjunction with Rutland County Council. The Awards, in two categories, are given in recognition of a significant contribution towards conserving or enhancing the character of the built environment of Rutland. The George Phillips Award, introduced in 1980, is for a recently completed new or refurbished domestic, commercial or industrial building or development in Rutland. The award was established following a generous donation to the Rutland History Society by Patrick Coyne in memory of his grandfather, George Phillips. The Tony Traylen Award, introduced in 2007, is for the renovation or conservation of an historic domestic, commercial or industrial building in Rutland The awards are for projects which are completed during the 18 months prior to the special Awards Ceremony at Oakham Castle, usually held in January. The owners of the of the buildings in the two categories whose projects are considered to have made the most significant contribution to conserving the character of the built environment in Rutland are presented with a certificate, and a plaque in the shape of a Rutland horseshoe which can be affixed to the building. The judges may also award highly commended and commended certificates in both categories. Click here to view a PDF review of the Rutland Built Environment Awards from 1980
